About

Wenwen Cheng is an assistant professor of Landscape Architecture. She earned her Ph.D. from the department of Landscape Architecture and Urban Planning at Texas A&M University, focusing on microclimatic landscape research and design. Wenwen Cheng uses interdisciplinary technologies such as remote sensing, spatial statistics, and bio- meteorological modeling to discover the relationship between urban climate change, human health, and evidence-based landscape design. Her research area includes outdoor thermal comfort and urban landscape design modification, especially for children; UVR exposure and landscape design; urban landscape ecology and urban heat island phenomena in different scales.
